Product data for multiple attic style sprinklers simply states that a hose allowance must be provided in accordance with NFPA 13 when using special application attic style sprinklers.
My logic, therefore, is that unused attic spaces show up as light hazard in A.5.2 (2016 Edition) and thus the hose allowance is 100 gpm for combustible attic spaces that don't house mechanical equipment or storage.
Am I off base here? While it isn't my case I would think the presence of mechanical equipment or storage in the attic would bump the density at least to OH1 and 250 gpm for the hose allowance.
